The tiny Tindims are like the Borrowers-on-Sea, who turn our everyday rubbish into treasure. Mother-and-daughter duo, prizewinning Sally Gardner and Lydia Corry, create a fun world of characters and adventures in their empowering new series for 5-8 year olds inspiring conservation and inventive ways to recycle.
On the Tindims' island home, Bottle Mountain is growing terrifyingly tall with rubbish. So tall that one night it breaks away. Across the ocean, a boy discovers Bottle Mountain bobbing by the seashore. For the first time ever the Tindims are discovered and get to meet the Long Legs and Little Legs. Can the Tindims and the humans help each other to save the planet?
Printed in dyslexia-friendly font with pictures on every page and perfect for the reluctant reader, the Tindims show keen young ecologists how to help protect our planet for the future.
